Research and Development
Tomorrow's answers today
AkzoNobel has pioneered some of the world's most innovative coatings. Our R&D employees embrace several of our core values when developing new products:
The courage and curiosity to question
Focusing on our customers' future first
Embracing entrepreneurial thinking
Our innovation over the years has lead us to be recognized as the leaders in chrome free primer technology such as our magnesium primer, Aerodur 2100 Mgrp, which shows equal and often better corrosion resistance than conventional chromate containing products.
Our use of the latest binder technology has lead to unique products for the land defense coatings market with Intergard 10220 peelable coatings. Intergard 10220 enables quick and easy camouflage change for rapid deployment forces. On return from theatre the paint can be simply "peeled" off and disposed of. This reduces the environmental impact of harmful strippers and significantly reduces time and saves money.
We are a recognized leader and innovator in color technology, including color formulation, spectrophotometry and color management.
